The Somali National Alliance (SNA) was a political alliance formed in June 1992 in Mogadishu, Somalia, with Mohamed Farrah Aidid as its head. Its constituents included Aidid's breakaway United Somali Congress faction, the Somali Patriotic Movement, and other southern groups. They were one faction in the Somali Civil War. Between 2,000-4,000 militants from the Somali National Alliance participated in the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993.


After the death of the senior Aidid in 1996, his son, Hussein Mohamed Farah Aidid, took over the SNA. It eventually became the core of the Somali Reconciliation and Restoration Council (SRRC), formed in 2001.
